Houk Expects Ford to Best Giants for Title SAN FRANCISCO (A-P) — Neither rain, nor hail nor wind, all of which were predicted for today's scheduled sixth World Series game between New York and San Francisco, could prevent Manager Ralph Houk from forecasting a world championship for his Yankees in six games. Undaunted by Manager Alvin Dark's dhoice of Billy Pierce as the Giant pitcher and cognizant of the veteran left-handler's 12-0 record at Candlestick Park, Honk confidently expected the Yankees to wrap It up today—weather permitting—'behind the left-handed slants of Wfiitey Ford. The Yankees lead the series, three games to two. "I expect Ford to beat Pierce," Houk sai'd Thursday picking Whi- tcy over Bill Stafford, although it was the young right-hander's turn in the pitching rotation. "I'm going with my best and let the chips fall where they may," added Houk. "I'm not underestimating Pierce. It will be a toiieto battle but Whitey should win. He's fit and ready. I know' Pierce hasn't lost here 'yet. But neither ha s Whitey. Remember he 'beat the Giants in his only apoearance here." Houk was referring to the on°n- in« game in which Ford scat'Ved 10 hits and won 6-2 with left- hander Billy O'Dell the loser. The odds-makers supported Houk's victory claim. They have established the Yankees a 13-10 choice to win today and a 7-2 favorite to win the series. Tlie odds were even greater against the game being plaved today. According to the Weather Bureau, there was a 90 per cent chance of rain. Warnings of 30 to 45 miles an hour wind have been posted. It was felt in some quarters that a -DostBonement would prove beneficial to the Giants. A dav's delay would eive Ford fo"r full day's rest and it has been Houk's contention that Ford is at his sharpest with only three days rest. Bv the Rame token, a rainc-ut would enable the Giants to come back with Jack Sanford. their ri>ght j hanrled ace. with sufficient rest for the seventh game, if one is nee'ded. Houk nlanned to start the same 'ine-wo he tias used in everv eame 'hut thp second when injuries forreri th° 'benching of first baseman Bill SkoVron and catcher Elston Howard. Skowron underwent »tv>atm""t for a .dhouWer and hand injurv Thursday but Houk said he wn"ld be in the lineup. Dark, who has been shuffling his line-up from game to game, made another change. Because of the left-handed opposition, he restored the rs?ht-handed Harvey Kuenn in left field in place of Matty Alou, with Felipe Alou switching to right field, and returned Orlando Cepeda to first base, replacing Willie McCoi'ey.
